Chicago students walk out of class, demand virtual schooling for two weeks and COVID 'stipends'

Chicago Public Schools students walked out of classes on Friday and made several demands, including a return to remote learning and coronavirus "stipends" for students.
Students from around the CPS system walked out of class at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, with some going to the system's headquarters in downtown Chicago to voice their demands.
On Monday, the group issued their list of 39 demands on Twitter, stating that the CPS "neglects" to address "subpar conditions."
CHICAGO 'RADICAL' STUDENTS PLAN SCHOOL WALKOUT, DEMAND COVID 'STIPENDS' AND TWO WEEKS REMOTE LEARNINGPart of the students' demands include that all classes shift to a remote format for two weeks while individual schools work on a plan to involve parents, students, parents, teachers, and administrators in their decision-making on coronavirus policies.
Once a plan is finalized, the students are demanding that the plan be put up for a vote by the school body.
In one set of demands, the group states that the CPS should "fully" fund public transportation for students, "reload EBT cards," and provide "covid relief stipends" to students.
According to Fox 32 Chicago, some students protested near City Hall, in addition to their own schools.

A spokesperson for the CPS told Fox News Digital that the district feels it's important for students to participate in civic action.
"Chicago Public Schools (CPS) remains committed to fostering learning environments that allow students to respectfully deliberate issues with evidence and an open mind – and safely participate in civic action," the spokesperson said.
